AEW News (AEW News) is a website which covers All Elite Wrestling, a professional wrestling promotion. The company was founded in January 2019 by Pakistani American entrepreneur Shahid Khan and his son, Tony Khan. They will back AEW with an initial investment of $100 million.
The promotion signs most of its talent to exclusive contracts, meaning they can only appear or perform on AEW programming and events. However, they do have partnerships with Japan’s New Japan Pro-Wrestling and Mexico’s Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide, which allows their wrestlers to make periodic appearances at AEW events.
Some wrestlers also participate in other promotions, such as WWE. These talents may be featured in AEW matches, but they are usually referred to as part of the “AEW family.”
Brian Cage’s rumored AEW contract ending has stirred up some buzz online, as fans wondered whether The Machine would find himself in WWE soon. Chris Jericho recently stated that he personally hopes to see Cage re-sign with AEW, though the star hasn’t had a strong return on TV so far this year.
Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks were reportedly in negotiations with AEW to extend their deals, but as of this writing, they aren’t close to a deal. The team had already collectively decided to leave New Japan Pro Wrestling in 2019, and a report from Fightful Select suggests they are currently making their next career decision together.
